More than 95,000 people have signed a petition calling on New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and the City Council to rename the stretch of Fifth Avenue outside of Trump Tower in Manhattan after former U.S. President Barack Obama.

“We request the stretch of Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th Streets be renamed ‘President Barack H. Obama Avenue.’

The text in the petition says that Los Angeles, California, has recently renamed one of its streets to honor Obama and argues that New York should do the same.

Among the reasons for changing the name of the stretch of Fifth Avenue, the petition mentions Obama’s many accomplishments, including saving the U.S. the Great Recession and taking out the mastermind behind the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks,  Osama bin Laden. (Sputnik/NAN)
